About these ratings

The Atlanta Botanical Garden should be a plant lover's first stop in the city. It covers a magnificent and beautiful 30 acres in the northern corner of Piedmont Park. Be sure to stop by the Fuqua Orchid Center, which features a huge variety of unique high-elevation orchids native to South America. Nearby is the Fuqua Conservatory, home to rare tropical and desert flora, including begonias, palms, hibiscus, and jasmine. You'll also find a wonderful and colorful collection of poison dart frogs within the glass walls of the conservatory.

"On the surface, telling your friends that you took a trip to a botanical garden sounds like it's about as much fun as a trip to the hospital," says one TripAdvisor user. "The Atlanta Botanical Garden has done a great job [creating] a beautiful green area." A children's garden rounds out the entire experience for the whole family.

Admission starts at around $19 per adult and $13 per child. Specific hours vary by the season, but generally, the gardens are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exception of Mondays and holidays. For more information on hours and special events check out the garden's website.
